My radio career began at KIEE-FM in Harrisonville, Missouri which later became KCFX in Kansas City. I worked there for 4 years before landing a position at WTAD and KHQA-TV here in Quincy doing a radio show and play-by-play sports. After doing TV Sports for KHQA, I worked for both WTAD and WQCY-FM (99Q). I moved over to WGEM as Operations Manager and then returned to WTAD as General Manager. In 2001 I joined Y101. I have been fortunate enough to win 6 Silver Dome Awards from the Illinois Broadcasters Association , including 5 for best Play-By-Play and one for Best Radio Show Entertainer. My favorite music is the Blues. The New York Yankees and the Kansas City Chiefs are my favorite teams. I played baseball for 24 years and my claim to fame is a double off of Rick Sutcliffe when we both played in Kansas City.

It is Long Past Time Women Get Equal Pay For the Work They Do

The year is 2014 and we are still wrestling with unequal pay for men and women in this country. This is an issue that is long overdue to go away. Why should men make more for a job than a woman? Give me one reason why job A is worth more to Sam than it is to Mary. It is time to put this issue behind us and pay a person what the job is worth and not pay a man this and a woman that.
